    He was the quintessential Bush appointee and a symbol of how we now are viewed by the rest of the world:

    UN members never respected Bolton. "He lives in another world, with this belief that he is morally superior and the U.S. is more moral than all the countries around the world," Oswaldo de Rivero, then the ambassador from Peru, a Security Council member, said.

    A sad, sad day. I hope his replacement does half the job he did.

    Christ, the guy was a bull in a china shop. Always a good idea to name someone that wants to destroy the UN to be your country's ambassador there. But that's typical of Fredo's regime.


    Of course, even Mr. Bolton’s success in championing the Bush administration represented a problem for him at the world organization, where that policy is perceived as disdainful of diplomacy itself, heedless in its effects on others and single-minded in its assertion of American interests.

    Yes, because being a bully is such a positive way to represent this country.

    Bolton is an example of what's been wrong with our foreign policy for most of Bush's term.

    You haven't been paying attenton, detective.
    Lyman and Guy think Bush is the greatest president in American history.

    I give you the words of the noted firebrand conservative Alan Dershowitz

    I agree with Dershowitz (and ostensibly you), PDB, but doesn't it become awful difficult to serve America within the auspices of the UN if one hasn't the respect and consideration of other delegates?

    The US Ambassador to the UN isn't going to win many popularity contests.
